Welcome to Memphis Central Station!

The home of the Memphis Railroad and Trolley Museum


MRTM Planning Three New Exhibits for the Reopening

(click the link above to read about the new exhibits)

NOTICE: Due to the reformation of Central Station into a hotel as a joint venture between the Henry Turley and Kemmons Wilson Companies the museum suspended operations on December 30, 2016 until such time that construction activities allow re-opening. We are expecting being able to re-open during the fall of 2018.

During this time the museum will also be going through a renovation; adding to and  updating exhibits with new technology and appeal.

Donate to the MRTM!

Announcing the “Friends of the Museum” Fundraiser Campaign! See the Donations page for details!

The MRTM can use your donations. We have several different ways you can help. Money donations are the most immediate need of the MRTM as we are a non-profit operated by individuals volunteering a large portion of their own time. Monetary donations will go towards the basic needs to keep the museum running. We are working on a number of sources of revenue, but donations will always be a big part of the mix.

There is another way can help if you are a Kroger shopper and it won’t cost you a cent! With the Kroger Community Rewards, a donation in the amount of 5% of your purchases at Kroger will be made to the MRTM. CLICK HERE for details.

The last way you can help is by donating or loaning railroad artifacts and documents for display at the museum. If you have any such items and would like to either donate or loan them to us for display, click on Contact Us and tell us about them.
